Two-tier stacker letter sorting system
The BIPIANO is the Elsag Datamat two-tier letter sorting machine: a reliable, flexible, ergonomic and “easy to operate” system, designed to sort and sequence large mail volumes at minimum operating cost.
The BIPIANO provides the best compromise between both one-tier stacker sorters and multi-tier solutions: in fact it is of course more compact than a one-tier machine, and has the same footprint of a multi-tier machine plus its tray shelves. Moreover, in two-tier stacker sorters, empty or half filled trays are retained in the machine so that operators are not required to turn each time they sweep a bundle.
The BIPIANO, originally commissioned in 2004, is the first two-tier letter sorting machine to be deployed in a live postal environment.
Summary for the elsag datamat solution
- Two stacker tiers
The sorter dimensions are designed to provide the optimum operating level based on ergonomic and functional studies conducted.
- High outlet stacking capacity and versatility of operations
High stacker capacity (500 and 370 mm) means the BIPIANO can be used in Pre-sorting, Final Sorting andSequencing contexts .
- Low cost
Total cost of ownership is minimized throughout the system's life cycle. The modular design - 12 outlets per module - increases potential to optimize the overall cost for investment, operations and spaces.
- Designed to improve efficiency, effectiveness, ergonomics and evolution
